About This Book
“Is there anyone who thinks they don’t have a soul?”
A book that sincerely ponders life, death, and the dignity of humans looked through the destiny of a clone made for organ transplantation
TIME magazine’s ‘100 Best English Novels’
Awarded the ALA Alex Award
The book ‘Never Let Me Go’ by Kazuo Ishiguro, one of the giants leading English literature in modern times and translated by Kim Nam Joo, has been published as a Minumsa Modern Classic.
‘Never Let Me Go’ is set in the Hailsham Boarding School in the late 1990s in England, a school where outside contact is cut off. The story is told through Kathy, who graduates from the school, and works as a nurse. She tells the story of love, sex, and the sad destiny of the clones who are made solely for organ transplant purposes. This book, through “an ingenious way to evade banality and bring the reader to a raw confrontation with death – loss – and the unendurable fragility of everything we love” (Times Literary Supplement), brings a serious introspection to the human life, dignity, and death.
It was set as TIMES magazine’s ‘100 Best English Novels’ as well as the ‘Best Novel in 2005’, and received the ALA Alex Award. It was translated into 37 languages such as German, French, and Japanese. It was made into a movie in 2010 through director Mark Romanek of ‘Stalker’.
